There are no text/lyrics; these Files were generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score and a published orchestral score), and so don't look pretty even though they should sound reasonable (though that depends very much on your hardware/software; mine is a Soundblaster AWE64 Gold).
Voice-emphasised Midi Files of the whole work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above). My Website also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There is a competent performance of this Work by John Eliot Gardiner & Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique on YouTube starting at
